It may be a stupid question but if I purchase a 360 and it gets a RROD would I need to have a credit card in order to send it in for repairs?

If it's RROD no they will not ask for your credit card, for anything else however, they will.

No just your shipping info and the serial number.

No credit card needed for the RROD and it is true that you can yell your way to some free swag. I know because I did it myself :P

You have to send it back to them and wait a week or so usually.

If you were to purchase a new 360 now, the odds are unlikely that you would even get RROD. :D

No way. Just call them(remember to take out your harddrive before sending), send it, and they'll reply back to you after 2 weeks or so.

Nope, you don't necessarily need a credit card. They jsut ask for your name and address.
